As you know you can easily record audio from your smart phone. But most times its not the ideal way of capturing the best possible sound quality.
If you want to capture decent audio to you iPhone for podcasts, band rehearsals, singing or even Facebook live, I would recommend the Shure MV88. It’s a top quality condenser microphone which enables you to record 24bit at 48khz straight to you iPhone.
